This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Eugene Reynaldo Quesada, a native of Wickenburg, Arizona, began sketching as a youth.  He earned a Bachelor’s degree from Arizona State University in 1952 and has studied in California, New York and with the Mexican muralist Jean Charlot.  During his youth he was influenced by such masters as Jose Clemente Orozco and Diego Riviera.
After graduation, he lived and studied in Guadalajara, Mexico, where he lived through the 1960’s.
His long residence in Mexico has flavored his body of work.  The artist, working for over 50 years, has included many faces of Latin America with the intention of evoking sensation or emotion with depictions of stuttering lines, torsos, and oblique forms.  He works in many media and styles, but is always concerned with his environment and heritage.
He deals in the barest essentials in defining his subjects.  Texture and color are used to define form rather than specific objects to make his paintings appear larger than they are.  His drawings suggest brief visual statements.  A few strokes of ink wash are enough to suggest the massive bulk and potential aggressiveness of a challenging bull.
